The IRIScan™ Desk 5 Security is a precious aid to encoding and verifying the documents provided by your clients (ID cards, passports, driving licences, etc.). This camera scanner therefore lets you set up a fast, reliable authentication and registration system in your establishment (hotel, hospital, medical centre, car rental agency, sports club, association, campsite, etc.).

This camera scanner will fit in perfectly on any reception or customer service desk. It includes a software package designed especially for registration procedures; IRISmart™ Security. Thanks to this software, the extraction and centralisation of key data from official documents is child's play.

What are the limitations and best practices

  • Please always use the black mat supplied with the device.
  • The best OCR results are obtained from a matte document; a shiny surface may produce results of lower quality.
  • The best results are obtained in standard work environment lighting conditions; too much brightness can affect the quality of the result (direct sunlight, for example, does not suit the scanner).
  • The available book export formats are as follows: PDF image, indexed PDF image & text, JPEG, and ePub. Audio formats (MP3 and WAV) are available as an option with Readiris Corporate.
  • This scanner is not optimised for photo scanning.
  • A “passport holder” (available as an option for ease of use and optimised results) helps with passport scanning.
  • IRISPowerscan™ (optional) must be installed if you wish to extract meta data from official documents (passports, ID cards, health cards, etc.).
